We were very excited to receive the Veritas Torch Connecticut from Chris the director of Veritas Cigars.

The Torch Connecticut features a beautifully wrapped Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.  The wrapper leaf was slightly oily with minimal veining.  The band on the Veritas Torch has a black and white color scheme and displays a clenched fist holding a burning cigar set to the background of a city skyline.  The artwork for the band is very cool.

Flavor wise the Torch Connecticut opened with some warm woody notes.  The more it smoked the more the flavors appeared.  About a quarter of the way in, this cigar develops a nice spice flavor to it.  I will mention that I smoked two of these cigars, the first when they arrived to me over a month ago, and one a couple nights ago.  The first did have a slight bitterness present while smoking.  I am guessing it just needed to sit in the humidor for a bit longer, because the second one was very good.

Construction wise this cigar is excellent.  The burn was smooth and the ash held on firm falling at around the quarter marks every time.  The Torch provides an adequate but not overbearing amount of smoke with a pleasant aroma.

Connecticut cigars are ones that are typically hard to get right.  The flavor profile of this cigar hits all of the right notes that you look for in a Connecticut cigar.  Recommend it?  Yes,  I’ll mention again that a little time in the humidor did wonders for it, as is true with a number of cigar we receive in the mail.  Go out and try one for yourself and let us know what you think.
